Homemade Frozen Hot Chocolate


My cousin and I decided that we wanted to try our hand at Frozen Hot Chocolate. It might sound like an oxymoron, but trust me, it's a real thing. We didn't make this up. We based our recipe on a combination of recipes found online.

Recipe makes about 2 mason jars of Frozen Hot Chocolate (15 mins)

Ingredients:
1/2 cup of chocolate chips (white or milk, depending on your preference)
1 cup of milk
1/2 packet of hot chocolate mix
1/2 cup of cream
2 tablespoons of sugar
8 ice cubes
Whipped Cream

- Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler over medium/high heat
- When smooth, add hot chocolate mix and sugar
- Stir
- Slowly add 1/2 cup of milk
- Remove from heat. Let cool to room temperature
- Add cream, milk, chocolate mixture and ice to blender
- Blend for about 10 seconds on max speed (our blender has an ice crusher setting, but you may have to use your judgement if yours does not)
- Pour into mason jar, top with whipped cream (you can also add chocolate shavings or chips for detail)
- Enjoy
